Sib’becha-i (a weaver), one of David’s guard, and eighth captain for the eighth month of 24,000 men of the king’s army. 1 Chron. 11:29; 27:11. (b.c. 1043.) He belonged to one of the principal families of Judah, the Zarhites or descendants of Zerah, and is called “the Hushathite,” probably from the place of his birth. Sibbechai’s great exploit, which gave him a place among the mighty men of David’s army, was his single combat with Saph or Sippai, the Philistine giant, in the battle of Gezer or Gob. 2 Sam. 21:18; 1 Chron. 20:4.
